Covering Your Interests

Happy Holidays! INSTALL NYC is pleased to share our most recent e-newsletter highlighting our recent news and programs throughout the Greater New York City area.

INSTALL NYC affiliate The Greater New York Floor Coverers Promotional Fund recently held a roundtable discussion entitled “Understanding and Diagnosing Concrete Floor Moisture Conditions to Prevent Floor Covering Failures” and we are pleased to share an overview of this event.

One of our members, Consolidated Carpet, recently partnered with IFMA Cares in donating and installing over 1,800 square feet of Interface carpet tile for the Neighborhood Coalition for Shelter’s New York City Headquarters. The Greater New York Floor Coverers Promotional Fund generously provided the labor to help this worthy cause.

In November, Floor Covering Weekly featured an article on our mission to decrease the number of installation claims through our proactive and comprehensive installation certification and training programs.

In this issue, we are also proud to profile INSTALL member Excel Flooring of Tri-State, Inc., based in Farmingdale, NY.

In November, INSTALL was featured in Floor Covering Weekly Magazine article that provided insight from our president, John McGrath, about our mission, goals and strategies to expand our influence as we lead installation certification and comprehensive training for our members — more than 100 floor covering manufacturers and 100 contractors. 

According to John McGrath, the lessons and training provided are designed to guarantee the most reliable contractors, eliminate installation claims and better service the industry. “INSTALL identifies reasonable standards for quality installation.
